Bahá’u’lláh invites all the peoples of the world, in the clearest and most emphatic terms, to investigate His divine Mission and to rejoice at the dawning of the new day.
Bahá’u’lláh claims to have fulfilled all the prophecies of the Gospel concerning the return of Christ:
“He, in truth, hath come unto the world in His most great glory, and all that hath been mentioned in the Gospel hath been fulfilled.”
This is a call to Christians who are waiting for the second Advent of their Lord. It is an invitation to all sincere followers of Jesus to open their hearts and minds to the most glorious news in human history. It asks all those who insist on the accuracy of their interpretation of prophecies to reconsider their assumption, to ponder the spiritual state of all those who made the same assumptions and held the same conviction at the time of the first Advent. They assumed that their Savior would come as a king to rescue them and restore their ancient glory and splendor. They dreamed of another David. That one unfounded assumption caused them to deny their Lord. Read this book with an open mind and respond to its most challenging and transforming message—a message that can change this planet into a veritable paradise.
This book is written to help all seekers and lovers of truth to pursue their divine destiny, and to carry out their spiritual commitment and responsibility to God. It is written to help them discover if Bahá’u’lláh is indeed the Glory of God—the most awesome expression of divine Splendor.
Unfortunately, most Christians are unaware of Bahá’u’lláh’s advent and the abundance of evidence He presents in support of His claim. Among Christian leaders and scholars perhaps one in a thousand has read even a single book about Bahá’u’lláh. If they take time and investigate the monumental evidence for His claim, they will see Him shine as brightly as the sun.
Consider this statement from a Christian leader and scholar, George Townshend, Canon of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, who investigated the news of the coming of the Lord and recognized Bahá’u’lláh’s Advent as the fulfillment of the most glorious promise in the Bible:
“Slowly the veil lifts from the future. Along whatever road thoughtful men look out they see before them some guiding truth, some leading principle, which Bahá’u’lláh gave long ago and which men rejected.”
